Overview

Master of Business - Information Systems

The Master of Business is designed for people aspiring to management roles, for current managers seeking formal qualifications and for those changing career direction. This program will help you to further develop your business skills, build specialist knowledge within your chosen area and accelerate your career.

The Master of Business program offers two different entry points depending on your previous studies. The Master (1.5 years) is designed for those graduates with a Bachelor's degree in the same discipline. The Master (2 years) includes the core fundamentals of general management for those graduates with a Bachelor's degree from any discipline. 

Both Masters provide an opportunity to specialise in two fields of study or additional research electives (which may provide a pathway to research higher degree programs). Each specialised field of study will equip you with the relevant knowledge to jumpstart or advance your chosen profession.

You can specialise in the areas of advertising, human resource management, information systems, innovation and entrepreneurship, international business, leadership, marketing, organisational sustainability, or supply chain management.

The field of Information Systems is designed for business managers who wish to obtain education and training in the analysis, design, use and management of Information Systems in a business environment. 

The program facilitates the development of advanced Information Systems skills that enable students to conduct data analytics and process improvement activities, as well as to advise on organisational information requirements and related strategy. 

Through completing the program, students are able to integrate their existing understanding of, and experience in, business, with skills in eliciting organisational requirements, skills in generating insights from data, and skills in designing and managing systems involving business data. 

Such skills are crucial in modern organisations, which are underpinned by Information Systems and depend on them to support efficient and effective decision making.

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available

The Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE) offers English language courses that can help you meet UQ's English language requirements.

Package offers:

If you meet all the academic entry requirements for your preferred UQ program, but need help to meet the English language requirements, you may be eligible for a package offer.

A package offer includes:

  • an English language course at UQ's Institute of Continuing and TESOL Education (ICTE), and
  • a conditional offer of admission to a UQ program.

When you apply for your UQ program, indicate that you want to apply for a package offer. Don't apply directly to ICTE.

You still need to provide evidence of your current English language ability (e.g. IELTS or another recognised test). We will assess your skills and place you in the best English course for your level.

Depending on your current English level you will be offered a place in one of the following English language pathways:

  • Bridging English (BE) – study for between 10 and 30 weeks. You can use the final assessment to satisfy the English language entry requirements for your UQ program.

Entry requirements:

You need to meet the academic requirements for entry to the UQ program and be within the specified range of English language proficiency for that program. Minimum entry is IELTS 5.0 or recognised equivalent for most programs, with some programs requiring a higher level.

  • General English (GE) and English for Academic Purposes (EAP) – study for between 5 and 45 weeks. Take an approved English language test at ICTE at the end of the course to show you meet UQ's English language entry requirements.

Entry requirements:

General English (GE): IELTS 4.0 to IELTS 4.5

English for Academic Purposes (EAP) has three entry points – IELTS 5.0, 5.5 or 6.0. 

Bridging English (BE): Minimum entry is IELTS 5.0 (or recognised equivalent) for most UQ programs, with some UQ programs requiring a higher level.

 

OET is not accepted.
